Arctic Cotton

Arctic Cotton is a family owned and operated business in Iqaluit, Nunavut offering baby care and child care products at ‘southern’ prices.

I designed and developed this e-commerce website. The eastern Arctic has limited bandwidth so I optimized images for file size, but kept the quality.

Once the website was completed I turned it over to Arctic Cotton so they could manage it themselves. I continue to act as a consultant, advising and assisting when more complex updates are required.
